Update: Vidar was wrong (see last week’s prediction below).
Phillip Phillips won.
The real winner should have been Jennifer Holliday’s facial contortions.
See you next year. I will avenge this loss!
ORIGINAL POST: There isn’t much fair about any elimination at this point.
Any one of the Top 3 would have been non-controversial as the winner.
But, let’s be serious, the closest thing to fair was tonight’s elimination of Phillip Phillips.
Sure, he’s super cute and absolutely perfect for the Name-Your-Radio-Station Beach BBQ Concert this summer.
But for him to make it further than Joshua or Jessica would have been criminal.
So – farewell, Phillip.
Wait a minute–
What the fuck? JOSHUA is the one eliminated?
Are you kidding me? But didn’t everyone hear him sing?
Seriously. Didn’t everyone hear him sing?
How could anyone with a voice like that be eliminated from any singing competition?
Oh wow – “American Idol” is completely corrupt and a joke.
But let’s not dwell on the past.
The future belongs to our final 2 – Jessica Sanchez and Phillip Phillips.
It will be an epic battle of vocal power not seen since… Adam Lambert battled Chris whatever-his-name-is… you know, that guy that beat Adam Lambert (the person just picked to front Queen). You know, Chris – that guy with the guitar who did a commercial but not much else after he won.
Sorry, it doesn’t really matter what that guy’s name was.
It’s all about the future.
And the future, as I said, belongs to Jessica Sanchez and Phillip Phillips.
So get ready, world, it’s on!
Whose high notes will be the highest? (Jessica)
Whose trills will be the trilliest? (Jessica)
Whose runs will be the runniest? (Jessica)
Who will look the palest and stare into the lights like he’s about to throw up? (Phillip)
Who will win?
That’s right – JESSICA WINS!
From her first talent show appearance at the age of 5 minutes to the “American Idol” stage, Jessica Sanchez has overcome the odds (?) and triumphed most triumphantly.
Good job, Jessica. May your first album of Christmas songs sell enough copies so you won’t have to “go country” immediately.
